MEMBERS continue to play e-bridge via Stepbridge. Our best players on Tuesday August 18 were Bob North and Neil Nagle, Tiny Betts and Leone Coper and Ian Huxley and partner.

On Thursday August 20, Kerry Harding and Heather Brown, Jenny Sharpe and Geoff Hiatt and Cheryl Shanley and Fran Hiatt were the top three.



NEW players are always welcome. Our days of play are Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8.30am. All equipment is supplied. The cost to play is $6 per session.

Tuesday – A good roll up on a Tuesday, even a bit of spring in the air. Janet was the only player to go Hoop to Hoop, good girl. After some clever coaching from Leanne even Kath managed a Jump Shot. Also just to show how easy these shots can be Karen, Peter, Esmee and Joy followed suit.

Thursday – June being the only player to record a Hoop to Hoop. Yvonne played a nice in off shot, then Carole did it twice, clever girls. Jump shots also played by Leanne and Bob,

Late in the day Joy and Leanne challenged Bob and Ken. Sorry girls the boys came home the winners, but only just, scores 7-6, 7-5 would have been good to watch.

Members might have noticed the cement pad has been laid for our ‘shed’ so packing our gear away will be much easier.

Mahjong continued on Thursday afternoon. Just turn up by 12pm.
